Design Space Exploration for MAHA Framework

Similar to the design space exploration for MBC based generic reconfigurable framework, critical decisions are required to select the design parameters for the MAHA framework. The choice is complicated by the fact, that the design choice should have minimal impact on the normal operation for the memory array which has been instrumented to form the MAHA framework. Moreover, the programmable interconnect resources are more restricted in case of MAHA and choice of interconnect hierarchy affects the success of mapping different applications to this framework. In addition, the size of the custom datapath component present in each MLB in a MAHA architecture needs to be ascertained. Similar to the case of a generic reconfigurable framework, the MBC software flow explores both logic and interconnect components and arrives at a design choice with minimum overhead but with a performance that satisfies the requirement.
